RE: is that a fork in the road?

Ok.  Have it your way.  What I said was that if 
someone meant to remove the well-formedness bedrock 
that is, return to requiring schema processing to 
pick up the defaults, then I agree with you:  bad 
plan.  What happens after that is up to the 
application language processing.  XML doesn't care.
Competition shall be the means to control change; 
so be it.  The best competitor controls change.

Given the results of recent planning, I'm certainly cheering for ad 
hoc.  For this phase of development, I've got a lot more faith in 
competition than committee, and I'm counting on well-formed XML - and only 
well-formed XML - to provide a foundation for interoperability that lets us 
get through this probably contentious period.
